    I made Etsy Front Page

    Like I do every morning, I checked my view count on craftcult and saw that my views increased over 300 views. I was curious and then I remembered that I was in a treasury so I checked the treasury and saw all the messages of congrats on Front Page. The curator, heatherhaymart, included my Coffee Brown knit coffee cozy. This is a great honor and I am so grateful to the curator for making such a beautiful treasury and including me.

    Here is my Front Page fame:

    Crazy Christmas

    With time of year, I expected some craziness with orders but never expected my holiday season to go this well. Since the end of November I have been receiving orders in my shop just about every other day and that is not even counting the custom orders that I have received. I have been working so hard on the custom orders for my online customers and am proud to say that I am all done with their orders. The pic to the right is a custom order that I did for a girl in England that wanted knit coffee mug cozies for her roommates but she wanted bar handle mustaches sewn on them. I think that they came out super cute and I am thinking of making some for Meagan's shop.

    Now I am keeping busy with custom orders for locals (I don't have to worry about shipping them) and some Christmas presents I want to give. I just hope I can do it all in the next 10 days.

    Kaedan Krafts Shop will be closing down

    I am completely outraged (to put it mildly) over the new CPSIA law that doesn't even consider the small business people of our "beautiful" country. Yes I started creating things as a hobby and it has grown into my business but now I am getting penalized because the goverment can't control it imports from China?? As a single mom, I love making baby clothes and blankets because they are just so cute for a child and now I am going to have to stop. This has become a good source of income for me and my children and now I am going to have to figure out how to work another job and pay the the babysitting for that. This country is digging itself into a deeper and deeper hole and I don't see the "government" ever getting us out. This country was built by the hardworking, small business owners of America and now they are being destroyed by our own "government". Please check out these website and contact your local respresentives to help us save our businesses.

    My brother's benefit last night

    Last night we had a benefit in my little brother's honor to help raise money to have his ashes buried at the cemetery and to pay some of the funeral costs and it was a great success. We raised over $2500 and I would like to thank everyone who helped organize the benefit and to everyone who donated their money in this struggling economy. Thank You
